This guide to the Acol style of bidding is meant to reflect what one might expect sitting down with a pickup partner and agreeing to play 'Acol' or 'Benjaminised Acol'.

Slam tries at AcolThere isn't too much different from other systems here. A partnership must identify the level of fit and that it has excess strength.
